Imagery and creativity are central to the progressive work of TIGI hairdressers across the globe and this is perfectly illustrated by the highly successful, TIGI Latin-American Photographic Awards. Since its launch six years ago, the awards have shown an amazing interaction between the TIGI brand and hairdressers throughout Latin-America, building a loyal, close and professional relationship with salon owners and their teams.
The 2018 Latin American Photographic Awards, organized by Patty Benavides and the LATAM Team, showed the passion, vision and skill of the participants, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of TIGI products. The 180 participants who came from México, USA, Puerto Rico, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Guatemala, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Colombia, Paraguay and Uruguay submitted over 300 photographs under the categories: TIGI Haircut, Creative Colour, Gent’s Look, Finishing & Styling and a special category, the LATAM Collective. The finalists, listed below, from each of the categories, received the chance to attend a 3-day special training class at the New York TIGI Academy.
One highlight of the Awards was the attendance of Anthony and Pat Mascolo, together with the US TIGI International Creative Team who were live at the event, together with General Manager for the Americas, Elisa Fischer.
The LATAM Photographic Awards are interesting for the mix of cultures and traditions. Full of energy, madness and creativity, the 2018 event certainly delivered a thrilling expectation!
